Château-de-Montfaucon Côtes du Rhône 2015
|Region||France, Rhone, Cotes du Rhone|
Wine AdvocateThe assemblage of the 2015 Cotes du Rhone includes only 50% Grenache, with the balance made up of 20% Syrah, 15% Carignan, 10% Cinsault and 5% Counoise. Perhaps as a result, it displays ample complexity on the nose and palate, with scents and flavors reminiscent of thyme, lavender and bay leaf alongside cherry and red berry fruit. It's medium-bodied, with silky tannins and a long, dry finish that elevates it well above ordinary. No, it's not a massive blockbuster, but it's a fine, elegant, unoaked table wine at a bargain price.
All sizes are 750mL unless otherwise noted.
